    Chef Kate's Note:

    From Chef Rozanne Gold, a classic French roast chicken with a wonderful bonus--a mushroom sauce to die for, enhanced, if you like, with a bit of port wine. Delicious with a merlot or a white burgundy.

      i generally enjoy gold's recipes and this was no exception. we cooked this in the french forum, it was easy to prepare with simple ingredients that produced great flavor, my famly loved it. i did use port for the sauce reduction, and a fresh kosher chicken that was slightly under 5 lbs. the cooking time was right on.
